The Entertation Index: February 10

February 10, 2011

Brûlée, Créme — In the greatest news all week, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James and folk-rocker M. Ward have — and this is no joke, people — started a blog wherein they literally critique créme brûlées from around the world. I’m not even going to cheapen this amazingness with further commentary, but I will say it makes me like these two guys even more than I already do. Which was a lot.

Decemberists, The — Colin Meloy and company have recorded a new song called “The Great Outdoors” for the popular Nick Jr. program Yo Gabba Gabba!, premiering on the kids’ network this week.

Simpson, Ashlee — The younger Simpson sister and rocker Pete Wentz have reportedly decided to call it quits on their marriage after a relatively-long-for-Hollywood two and a half years, People Magazine is reporting. According to the magazine’s source, “It’s very amicable — they’re on very friendly terms and speaking — it’s fine.” This news came in a bizarre interview wherein Simpson moved her mouth open and shut as the undisclosed source spoke the words into the microphone.

Yorker, New — In what has become a startling exposé, Oscar-winning screenwriter Paul Haggis has come forth in a current New Yorker profile piece to publicly criticize the Church of Scientology, claiming he’s heard “horrifying” things concerning the church’s superiors and says that he wouldn’t be surprised if we see him involved in some scandal in the upcoming years which on the surface “looks like it has nothing to do with the church.” Personally, I don’t see what the big deal is about calling out Scientology.
